Been a couple of days . . .

. . . and a lot has happened!!  Biggest thing is I finally got Dad to sit down and listen to me!!  Is he ever busy lately, with doing “home visits”, running new foster Ranger to the vet, etc.  But, I finally cornered him, so this can be all about me!!

We went to the “event” last Saturday!  It was good to get out of the house!  It was a big adoption event, I went as an “alumni”.  Not sure exactly what the means, but it must be good, right?  I was kinda mad at first, my brother Reno got to go before me!  And Dad took off really early that morning.  Something about helping to set up.  Anyway, Dad came back for me, and sis Ciera and off we went.  There was a tent to provide shade, and a big bowl of water, and lots and lots of people!!

There were a whole lot of other dogs there too!  Oh the smells!!  Dad drug me up to where the loud music was coming from and I got introduced to the whole crowd!  Everyone clapped and later came by to say “Hi”!  I got lots of scratches and treats!  We must go to these more often!!

Dad took me to meet Mona.  She is a boxer  that lost the same leg as me for the same reason!  We didn’t get to know each other too well, she was pretty tired as she had been out there all day!  Not only that, but she was deaf as well!  We said hi to one another, and then she took a nap.  I have a feeling she does that a lot!  Then it was time to go back to our tent.

We had a lot of people come up and ask about me.  They all wanted to give me scratches and cookies.  It was really hard to keep going.  I mean, lots of love, lots of treats and it was all about me!!  All in all, it was a pretty good afternoon.

I kept looking for Reno, but Dad said he went to his “forever” home.  I thought he was already there??  You humans are so confusing at times!  But, you do have ways of opening the treat jars, so I guess we k-9’s will keep you around!  Dad also said that Reno wont be coming home with us.  It sure will be quiet with out him around.  I hope he has a good life, he certainly deserves it!

Later, it was time to go home.  Mom and Dad helped pack everything up and off we went.  We got home, unloaded everything we brought home, and took a nap!  It had been a long afternoon!  Mom and Dad seemed quite excited, as they kept saying they didn’t have to worry about me going somewhere else ever again.  Does this mean I don’t get to go anywhere?  They said this “adoption” was final and that I got to hang out here.  Well, duh!!  If I wasn’t hanging here, where would I hang out at?  Again, you humans are confusing sometimes!

The only bad thing was that the day before, I got another one of those baths.  Really??   Dad used my love of helping him drive against me!  I even got my nails clipped!  It was ok for the first couple of minutes, then I got tired and laid down in the tub.  I made Dad pick me up to finish washing me.  That will teach him!!  Then he got the blow dryer out!  I am getting him back though.  I have started to lose my winter coat, a little at a time.  He thinks it is my younger brother Murphy.  Ha ha, jokes on him!!

Mom and Dad say I am making great progress.  All I know is that I am making quicker laps around the pool and I can almost beat Murphy to the fence when the little dog behind us starts barking.  I have to go make sure it knows who the boss is and that he better not come in MY yard.  Of course, little sis Ciera beats all of us. She is so quick!!

So, to recap, I got a bath (yuck!!), my brother Reno went to his forever home, I got lots of scratches and treats and my sister still has a big nose!  All in all, it has been a good week!  As soon as I get Dad to, I will have him post up some of the pics Mom took of me this past weekend.  I think now is a good time to take a nap!

  3. Oh Hobbes!! Yu are cracking me up over here as usual! 🙂

    You write THE most delightful posts!Oh my goodness, what an adventure you nave been on! I was just exhausted reading avout it all, so I know you were one tired pup !!

    I’m giving you a standing ovation through cyberspace, okay? You deserve it sweet boy! And so do your mom and dad for helping so many other dogs!!

    I agree, getting your nails done and having to take a bath…yeah, your humans are getting a little carried away with all that stuff. Do you have deer poop or cat poop where you live. Next time you have a bath, run outside a d find the biggest pile you can and drop and roll! Yeah, they’ll love that!!

    Can’t wait to see the pictures!!!

    Thanks again for making us all smile today!

    Sending so much love to you, your pack and your humans!
